It wiped out half the earths population once. Let's hope those at the CDC are doing their jobs.

correct, just that the current strains can be easily controlled with some antibiotics, thanks to insensible meat producers who feed antibiotics, if needed or not, just to increase production we might not have that luxury for long anymore.

Its been spreading through Kazakhstan and Krygystan recently, if we look elsewhere you'll see Madagascar and DR Congo have a problem. lucky for us these places are not tourist hot spot. maybe Madagascar is the exception, but truth is if the plague was to spread the first wave of infectees would be brown bread by the time health officials realised what was what.

It seems like fear mongering to me too. Kind of like when everyone thought we'd die of SARS or bird flu.

Ah yes the DR Congo, they have a list of major infectious deaseases which make

the plague look like chipped nail.

A few years back France did tests on some of the "tourists" coming from there and discovered another strain of the aids virus, England did not even check their passports!

EVERYONE from these countries should be tested BEFORE they leave their countries and the tests should be done by someone who cannot be paid off to alter the results.

most probably right with the fear mongering for media sensationalism, but the potential does exist. as for SARS or Bird flu - for some that fear mongering did become a reality. the mortality rate for those infected was 9.5% and 60%, but compared to 'old mans friend' the "normal" seasonal Flu with 250,000 to 400,00 deaths world wide annually, we've probably go our eye on the wrong one. but then we seem to have become accustomed to the seasonal flu and so the media dont sensationalise it, even though here in the UK alone 4,000 to 12,000 die annually of influenza.
